No one wants to share their supplier, manufacturing contacts, or industry knowledge because they’re worried that you’ll become their competition.
What’s more, many manufacturers won’t respond to inquiries from new designers.
The reality is that the more sustainable fashion entrepreneurs that are empowered with the right contacts, (and the best way to communicate with them), the quicker the fashion industry can evolve into a more ethical industry.
And that’s exactly why Factory45 exists.
For the past 8+ years, we’ve worked with hundreds of entrepreneurs to take them from idea to launch.
